Infiniti Previews Q Inspiration Concept Ahead of Detroit Debut

A small peek into the future of Infiniti design

A few weeks ahead of its official reveal at the 2018 Detroit auto show, Infiniti gives us a peek at the new Q Inspiration concept. This all-new concept is a design study previewing what we can expect from the brand in the near future.

At the moment, we're only privy to a single rear-three-quarter shot of the car. From the looks of things, it's still recognizably Infiniti, with distinctive cut-lines and drop-off edges toward the rear of the car. Beyond that, the Q Inspiration appears a bit slab-sided, with a noticeable amount of flat real estate around the doors and portions of the rear quarter panels.

"Experimenting with new proportions in a typically conservative segment, the Q Inspiration features a shorter hood and elongated body," said Infiniti Executive Design Director Karim Habib, in a release. "We aim to take the traditional sedan architecture to its next stage of evolution."

At the moment, information remains scarce on both the powertrain and interior design, but it's expected to pack either an electric/hybridized powertrain or the variable compression four-cylinder found in the new QX50.

Look for more information and photos closer to the car's debut at the 2018 Detroit auto show.

Aside from what most automotive journalists think, the DMC-12 DeLorean was one of the dopest cars ever made.

It wasn’t the all-too-familiar Initial D series, nor was it the almost natural association with drifting that pulled Lester Donis’s attention to his two-toned 1986 Toyota Corolla GTS. It also wasn’t a feature story or any sort of social media influence that nudged him toward the iconic hatchback. Interestingly enough, his childhood encounter with a
